Lovely North London (N8) apartment: 2 bedrooms, quiet, secure, comfortable & good transport links to central London

Beautiful apartment on the first floor of a Victorian terrace for rent - polished original floorboards, original Victorian features and white walls throughout. Would suit single person or a couple. Two bedrooms, one of which we use as a study but could also be used to accommodate a third person. The apartment is fully furnished with all amenities, including central heating and wireless internet.

The apartment is located in a residential neighbourhood just north of Finsbury Park and a few minutes' walk from Green Lanes. This is a vibrant and multicultural area of North London with a fantastic range of local independent shops, including a profusion of Greek & Turkish restaurants, bakeries selling every possible variety of baklava, Polish food stores, a Chinese restaurant, a small Chinese supermarket, Indian curry houses, pizzerias and lots more. There is also a very convenient small Tesco supermarket at the end of the road. About ten minutes' walk away is a large Sainsbury's supermarket and gas station, along with a drugstore.

To the west (about 20 minutes' walk) is Crouch End, with more independent stores, bars, restaurants, banks and so forth. Also close by (15 minutes' walk) is the Wood Green shopping precinct, with many high street shops and a shopping mall.

In terms of transport links, the area is also well served. There is a bus stop about 40 metres away from which to get bus 29, which goes to Bloomsbury. The 29 also stops within ten minutes' walk of the British Library. Bus 341 goes through Islington to central London and is convenient for Kings College and the LSE. On-street parking outside the apartment; a residential parking permit will be needed but can be arranged.

The closest tube stop is Manor House which is in zone 2 on the Piccadilly Line. It takes 15 minutes to get into central London; the tube stop is a 15-minute walk from the apartment or can be reached in 5-10 minutes by buses which come every few minutes. Kings Cross, Euston and St Pancras stations are 15 minutes away by tube, which is convenient for journeys to Cambridge, cities in the north such as Birmingham or Manchester, and Eurostar services to the continent.

The apartment has central heating and is very secure and safe. The kitchen has a gas hob and electric oven, a dishwasher, a fridge, a microwave, a washing machine, and all cookware and crockery needed.

The rent includes electricity, water and wireless broadband. You will need to pay separately for gas and outgoing phone calls (or you could use Skype). Non-smokers only, please.

We have rented the apartment to a number of other academics/academic couples both from abroad and from the UK - and would be happy to put potential renters in touch with them.
